As my mind drifts…

4 Comments

It’s funny how the writer’s brain works. Some days I can push the characters voices away so that I can do my accounting or other work that needs to be done. But most days they seem to take over my thoughts and even the simplest tasks are hard. The only way to get them calm is to write or at least get a outline down on paper.

One example of my mind drifting was discovered yesterday morning at breakfast. I love apple cinnamon oatmeal. When I was at the grocery store last Friday I picked up a box of my beloved oatmeal or so I thought. I all but forgot I’d purchased the box of oatmeal until yesterday. I smiled happily as I heated my water and mixed my oatmeal. I did notice that the oatmeal had pieces of something red in it, but I thought it was made from red apples, so hence the red peels.

As I took the first bite, anticipating the sweet apples and wonderful cinnamon flavor I made a face. This wasn’t right. I took another bite and still nothing familiar. I got up and walked to the kitchen, curious about why this tasted different. That’s when I made the discovery. I’d purchased apple/cranberry oatmeal. Giggling at my goof up, I remembered that a story line was niggling my brain as I shopped and evidently I wasn’t paying attention to my purchases very carefully. At least the oatmeal is flavorful and the cranberries are good for me. I’ll eat it and remember my mind drifting.

I’ve noticed many times in my life when I would drift away to another time, place or most anywhere but where I need to be. But be warned, when driving it’s not good to drift too far away.

As always, good writing and May God Bless you…

  1. “Mind-Drifting” should be listed as a “Hobby”…lol…the older I get the more I do it….I really enjoy your post.

  2. At this moment, I’m ashamed to say I have the attention span of a flea. 😦
